Personnel of Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) has arrested 6 members of the fraudsters with main accused from Bayazid area of the city.  Tk 70,000 of money was also recovered at that time. The arrested are: Md. Rubel Hossain, Md. Manik Hossain (38), Md. Nazrul Islam (45), Md. Mizanur Rahman (34), Md. Nirab (21), Abu Tayyab Siddiqui alias Mithu (49).

 According to RAB, a man named Idris Patwari was arrested on the afternoon of June 26 for stockpiling and selling fake documents.  Later, a person named Rubel called Idris' wife's mobile phone with the identity of RAB.  They asked her to pay Tk 5 lakh for the office expenses and sir for leaving her husband.  When his wife said he could not pay that much, he later agreed to pay Tk 70,000.

 He later sent them Tk 70,000 through bKash.  If she does not return home even after sending money, you can find out by searching the police station that a case has been filed against her husband for keeping fake document stamps.

 At one point he learns that Rubel is an active member of an organized fraud ring.  In addition, his associates collectively collect large sums of money from the common people on various pretexts in the name of doing various things under false pretences as law enforcers and RAB members.

 RAB-7 Senior Assistant Director (Media) Nurul Abshar said that the truth of the incident was found after investigating the matter.  Six members of the gang with main accused Rubel Hossain were arrested in a raid in Bayezid police station area on Thursday.
